AGC of California hosts stand down for Mental Health Awareness

On May 19, AGC of California, in partnership with Teichert Inc., Operating Engineers Local 3, and Loyalty Point Leadership, held a Mental Health Awareness Stand Down to call on the construction industry to recognize the importance of mental health for workers’ safety and well-being.

The stand down took place at the San Benito Route 156 Improvement Project in San Juan Bautista, California, in recognition of May as Mental Health Awareness Month. Teichert halted construction for one hour as speakers explained how to recognize the signs and symptoms of substance abuse and mental health disorders and what resources are available for help.
